Getting closer to God

I got inspired this week.

This happens often.

Open your eyes and ears and you will find so much to inspire you!

My inspiration this time came from a blog called The Bible Post.

For some time I have been discussing with one of my closest friends the fact that we struggle to hold on to Godly truths and promises because we don’t remember what they are!

How can we learn and remember what they are? Start memorising the bible, verse by verse, passage by passage.

We need to imprint in in our minds so that our lives can be directed by it and we can fall back on its truths whenever we need them.

My proposal then is this: let’s start memorizing verses together.

Here’s how I propose we do it:

  1. Every week I will place a new ‘Verse of the week’ at the top right hand side of my blog here at
  2. When I post the verse I will also write a blog post announcing it. The first time you see that post read the verse and leave a comment about what that verse says to you, what it means to you. 
  3. Every day, read that verse aloud and start to commit it to memory. Repeating it like that every day for 7 days should mean that you have it memorized by the end of the week.
  4. At the end of the week, leave another comment saying what that verse means to you now. 
Why leave two comments? Simple – Gods word is deep and speaks on many, many different levels. As you read and re-read the same verse or passage of scripture, God will speak to you and reveal new things to you about His love and plan for you and for this world. The second comment is to encourage others with what you have learned from God this week.
We’ll do a trial run over the next few days:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
